Heart Transplant Family Picnic

Heart Transplant Family Picnic

Stricker's Grove Amusement Park

The Heart Transplant Family Picnic provides an opportunity for children, teens and adults with heart transplants to interact with each other in a non-clinical, family-oriented setting. It also allows patients and families to build ongoing friendships with others who understand and share their unique hopes, challenges and experiences.

We invite patient families who are a part of the Heart Transplant Program to attend this FREE, fun, family-friendly event. The picnic is closed off to the public so we have the entire park to ourselves. 


In light of COVID-19, this event is postponed until further notice. Please follow our Facebook and Twitter pages to stay informed when this event is back on the calendar.
